Jha said this while presiding over a meeting to finalise modalities for the implementation of the project.

A week ago, the state government had said a science city will be developed in Gurgaon.

Amit Jha said the centre will have a science gallery, 270-degree immersive projection hall, 3D auditorium and a cafeteria besides other facilities.

During the meeting, it was decided that the building of the centre will be constructed by the PWD (B&R) Department while galleries and exhibits will be installed by the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), Kolkata.

Jha said Kalpana Chawla Memorial Planetarium at Kurukshetra will also be upgraded by the NCSM.
